For the love of...

The third Rebbe of Vorke - Reb Simcha Bunem of Vorke - made the journey up to the Holy Land and settled in Jerusalem.

Some people think it's hard to live here these days. It was a lot harder then.

One resident found it difficult to adjust to the new life in the Holy Land. He decided to leave, but before he left he went to take his leave of the Rebbe.

The Vorker Rebbe told him, "I'm truly sorry that you didn't find favor in the eyes of Jerusalem. If you had, she would have found favor in your eyes!"
